Re: “Burlingtonians Speak Out to Save Memorial Auditorium

Bravo to this collaborative group of empowered citizens. They are absolutely right that the public's voice is systematically being drowned out in Burlington.

"Event organizers had difficulty getting city support for the event."

I hope this is a strong first step: one that prevents Memorial Auditorium from becoming another 14-story monstrosity of "affordable housing." All eyes are on you, Miro.

Re: “City Reveals Burlington Telecom Bids, But Questions Remain

Miro strikes again. Shocking.

Re: “Cambrian Rising: A Massive Project Advances Quietly in the Queen City

$925 for 280 square feet. Nine hundred. And twenty-five dollars.

Gotta love how the mayor and his developer buddies are "solving" the affordable housing crisis, one massive project at a time. My money's on Farrell or Sinex landing the Moran Plant next ...

Re: “Will North Country Voters Repeal and Replace Congresswoman Elise Stefanik?

When Stefanik does visit her district, according to the journalists who cover her, she favors tightly controlled events at which she's unlikely to face tough questions from activists or reporters. (Stefanik's press secretary, Tom Flanagin, declined an interview request from Seven Days and, for three weeks, refused to disclose her whereabouts in the region.)

Sounds strikingly familiar to another carpetbagging loser named Hillary Clinton.

Re: “Backpedaling: Burlington Residents Challenge Plans for More Bike Lanes

Doesn't Dave Hartnett "(D)" - ha! own a gas station?

Maybe he should consider his own conflict of interest before casting aspersions at the DPW director.

Re: “Book Review: Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In, Sen. Bernie Sanders

Long after the blatant myth of "Bernie Bros" has been disproven, Kevin Kelley insists on perpetuating it. Nice "journalism."

Re: “Bernie Bits: In Iowa, Sanders Turns Up the Heat on Clinton

Oh FFS. Bernie has neither gone "negative" or into "attack mode." He has vowed not to make personal attacks, and he has not done so. He is pointing out the very clear distinctions between his record, and Secretary Clinton's. That's not an "attack," that's truth.
